Caption: Jerusalem. Artwork of the city of Jerusalem in the Kingdom of Judea at the time of King Herod's reign (37-4BCE). North is at upper left. Herod was appointed king by the Romans, who ruled the area at that time. Herod's temple, also known as the third temple, is within the Court of Gentiles (large rectangle at upper left). On the outside of the northern wall is the Antonia Fortress, named for Mark Antony, which housed a garrison of Roman soldiers. Herod's palace is within the walled complex at lower centre left. Golgotha, or Calvary, hill, where Jesus is said to have been crucified, is situated just outside the northern end of the west wall.
